TELECOMS GIANT VODAFONE is to create 200 new jobs in Dublin, spending €60 million on a new European sales centre.

The centre, to be called the “Red Edge” will provide specialist sales capability to support business customers in Ireland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

Recruitment for the new jobs is already well underway, an event in Dublin heard today.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny, who was in attendance, said that the jobs were a vote of confidence in Ireland.

“The government is working hard to rebuild a sustainable enterprise led economy, which is a prerequisite for full employment. Today’s new jobs highlight Ireland’s attractiveness as a location where companies have access to a talented and highly skilled work force.”

Vodafone Ireland’s announcement today will bring its number of direct and indirect employees in Ireland to around 2,000.

They say that Ireland was chosen, following a “thorough evaluation process”, for the location of the centre primarily because of “the access to a large pool of the country’s highly skilled and talented graduate population”.

The investment is supported by the Department of Jobs and IDA Ireland.
